Helping the Nene Valley Railway

By leaving a legacy to Nene Valley Railway, you can help ensure that the wonders that this heritage railway holds will continue to stand the test of time for future generations. You don't have to be rich and leave a massive donation - any amount, whether money or property, small or large, will go towards the charity work that we carry out every day.

Of course, we understand that your priority will be to ensure that those closest to you are taken care of. However, once you have done this, if you feel you are able to leave a gift to the railway, there are multiple ways of doing so:

Common Forms of Legacy

So How Can You Help?

The prospect of leaving a gift can seem like a daunting process; however, it really is simple. You should always seek advice from a professional legal advisor before making or changing your will. If you have already left a gift to the Nene Valley Railway in your will, your support is greatly appreciated, and we would love to keep you updated about our work, so please let us know if we can do so. We appreciate that you may want to keep the nature of your will confidential and therefore understand if you do not wish to let us know about this.

Nene Valley Railway is reliant on the hard work of our volunteers, without whom the work we do would not be possible. It is interesting to note that the annual income created by legacies forms 15% of all voluntary income received by British charities.

How Else Can You Support Us?

As a charity, there are many ways you can support us in being a successful heritage railway: from a simple donation of cash or items to be displayed in our museum, to a regular Gift Aided donation or a valued gift in memory of a loved one. If you would like us to get in touch with you regarding a donation, please contact our accounts department by email at accounts@nvr.org.uk.
